My little surprise package..
And fabric squares for 2 Bai Jia Beis (or 100 Good wishes quilt)..
Have you ever heard of the Bai Jia Bei? It is a tradition in northern China for family and friends to each contribute a piece of fabric towards a quilt for a newborn baby and to accompany the fabric with some good wishes written on a card.
Bai Jia Beis have been popping up on lots of French blogs recently and although I might never make one for my boys (they each have a quilt my mum made for them), I love the idea of taking part and then spotting my little bits of fabric in the middle of so many others, just like here! I sent polka dots to Marie Dardennes for her little boy and pastel colours to Hermine for her new baby girl. Helene is looking for pink, grey, purple and turquoise squares for her 2 girls and Camille has just finished her little girl's BJB and is now looking for blue squares for her boy's - join in if you like!
